Faulk posted an assist, four shots on goal, four blocked shots and a plus-2 rating in Wednesday's 4-2 win over the Ducks. Faulk got the puck to Alex Pietrangelo, who buried a long empty-net goal in the third period. The assist was just Faulk's second point in six games -- inconsistency has plagued the veteran blueliner all year. His 16 points in 69 games represent a career-low production rate. He's added 147 shots, 82 hits and 76 blocks.
Faulk (upper body) was minus-1 with three shots in Monday's 2-1 loss to Florida. Faulk returned after missing the previous two games with his issue, and he logged 18:28 of ice time against the Panthers. Faulk has just one point -- a goal -- in his last 14 games and is on track for his least-productive season since his sophomore campaign of 2012-13. He has five goals and 15 points in 68 games on the year.
Faulk (upper body) will play in Monday's game against the Panthers, Jim Thomas of The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports. The 27-year-old missed the past two games with the upper-body issue, but he'll return on the team's third defensive pair. Faulk has been a decent contributor for the Blues, producing 15 points across 20:35 of ice time in 67 games this season.
Contrary to a previous report, Faulk (upper body) will be a game-time call for Monday's game against the Panthers, Lou Korac of NHL.com reports. Faulk was expected to sit out the contest, however, coach Craig Berube said Faulk will take warmups and is expected to play. The 27-year-old would be a nice boost to the lineup after missing the past two games. Expect the official word on Faulk's status prior to Monday's 8:00 ET puck drop.
Faulk (upper body) is set to be unavailable versus Florida on Monday, per Louie Korac of NHL.com. Considering the club was entering a back-to-back, Faulk figured to be a long shot for Monday's contest after being on the shelf versus Chicago on Sunday. With the blueliner unavailable, Robert Bortuzzo figures to make his third straight appearance in the lineup.
